How this family built life hack culture



They inspired “Cheaper by the Dozen.” But their story is far more interesting than a movie.

This famous family was fascinating, unique, and contributed to the way we live today.

In this pilot episode of History Club, Vox’s Phil Edwards and Coleman Lowndes discuss the incredible Gilbreth story, with all its twists and turns.

The Gilbreth family became famous in the film “Cheaper By The Dozen” but they were far more interesting than the most recent incarnation. Though the 1950 movie came closer to the truth, the real Gilbreths were pioneers in home life and the business world.

Frank and Lillian Gilbreth were equal partners in their unique business of time efficiency. Frank Gilbreth brought a construction background, while Lillian was the psychological half. Together, their time and motion studies mixed analysis and psychology in a seamless fashion.

Later on, Lillian led their business alone — and her pivot to home life has a clear connection to the life hack culture we live in today.

    The 1950 movie is better and the ongoing one in 1952 (Bells on their toes) was also great

    My Mother grew up with the Gilbreths in Montclair, NJ. She said they were a strange bunch. Of course she was talking about the kids her age. I believe they lived a couple of blocks away. It seems you have never seen the older film of 'Cheaper by the dozen.' The older movie covers many of the areas that you speak of.

    Show me the ten problems you can see show me then ten solutions and I'll take you seriously. My philosophy because a leader sees the way, shows the way and leads people to the way.

    absolutely… lady gilbreth is the inventor of part of our way of life, I agree. I have a similar feeling intuition that Mélies invented the galaxy of visual storytelling that we still live in. I'd love for you guys to network melies in the same manner. cheers from Rio.
    ps. please mona keep them up…!
